With transparent sacs on extended stems, this red algae resembles its common name, sea grapes (not to be confused with the sea grape tree!). It looks so delicate, but was obviously strong enough to weather the turbulent tide that pushed it on shore. The glistening from early morning sunlight and dark crimson hues make it a 'stand out' in the sandy environment. 2nd Ave N & Gulf of Mexico, Naples, FL


  1. Lovely shot. I like the shadows and the blurry background.

  2. Wonderful composition, amazing nuances in the colours, and a spellbinding focus. Top-notch!
